Flashback Bubbles

Hello.

We received emails recently asking why we have not been posting some of the earliest Hattingdon cartoons on Fridays like we used to.

We used to post them on what we called “Flashback Friday”. But there was very little traffic. We were hardly reaching anyone. Let’s see what happens today.

Do we ever have a flashback for you. This is one of the earliest Hattingdons Vivian created. She got the inspiration literally while taking a bath. The bubble bath she used at the time came in a big pink plastic bottle. And from that she created “Bubbles”.

Isn’t she sweet?

Thanks for stopping by. See you again soon.

Deidre Classic

Greetings and salutations on this Classic Hat Monday. Today we have a fabulous classic hat for you, called Deidre.

The Deidre classic hat is a black hat with a striking red hatband. The hat’s dome and brim features a line of white houndstooth on them. Coordinating red ‘nosebobs’ complete the look.

By the way, we are often asked how we came up with the word ‘nosebobs’. Easy. We modeled it on earrings being called ‘earbobs’, a term used in the Old South of the United States for earrings or eardrops.

The classic hat

The classic hat is very, very popular and has been from the day it was launched in 2009. There are still many Hattingdon fans who prefer the classic hat to any other hats that she wears. How did it come about?

After a year or two of making a wide variety of hats for Hattingdon, Vivian created a basic hat silhouette with a round dome and medium wide brim. Then she started designing for it, and it ultimately became a series with a big following. She named it the “classic hat.”

The classic hat became popular right away, and enjoys a dedicated fanbase that is still going strong today, more than a dozen years later.

Daisy Monday

Hello, and happy Monday. It is time for a classic hat, and this one . . . . is a new one. Vivian named the hat Daisy, and you are about to see why.

Daisy Hattingdon Blue.
Daisy Hattingdon Green.
Daisy Hattingdon Peach.
Daisy Hattingdon Black.

We were not too sure about the black, but it turned out lovely. The blue and green are so fresh and fun. But the peach! We are all in love with it here. How about you? Which one do you love most?
